Watch how members put their faith in action.

Dear colleagues in ministry,


Please save the date Sunday, Sept. 8, for "God's work. Our hands." Sunday.

Our dedicated day of service provides us with an opportunity to be “church together” as we serve our communities in ways that share God’s love with all of God’s people.

Since 2013 our congregations have put their faith in action for “God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday. Watch how volunteers from Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Somerville, N.J., used their gifts during their day of service in 2018 and be inspired as you make your plans.

Earlier this year we announced a hymn contest for “God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday. The chosen hymn will become a year-round worship resource and should reflect on service as one of our most basic convictions as Lutherans. We are pleased to have received a number of original compositions as the March 1 entry deadline approaches. Learn more about details and contest rules.

Save the date and visit for updates to our resources. And if your congregation cannot participate on Sept. 8, please consider another time.

You work every day to make your community a better place. We look forward to working together on “God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday.

God's peace,


Christina Jackson-Skelton

Executive Director, Mission Advancement
